Hi, this one may take some seeing to believe. For proof, set up a local
server or proxy (I can help with this) or fire up and tweak the
behavioral tests included with these bugs [1] or ask a network oper
friend to check their logs (they'll already know immediately if you
mention ERC).

BTW, the included unit tests may require a quick refresher on the
relevant portions of the codebase. Happy to make a mess of explaining
the specifics. Thanks.

From 78314388e91aa263dfbaaf24528eac8ddd15e353 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001

Subject: [PATCH] Don't send empty lines for implicit targets in ERC

* erc.el (erc-send-input-line): Previously, any line typed into a
query or channel buffer without an explicit user-command
handler (meaning most lines), would be sent twice because a trailing
newline (linefeed) would be appended. This has been verified by
checking IRCd server logs. IRCds won't return an error upon receiving
an empty message, but they also won't forward them to channel
subscribers and DM pals.

* erc-tests.el: Add test for erc-process-input-line, which also
indirectly tests erc-send-input-line. It also tests the command
lookup and dispatch facility
